Hi, I'm Jenny Stockton. I believe the best things in life are good food, good books, good music, and good people. One of my favorite things to do is sit down at a big table with other people to share a meal and a good, long sobremesa. I love reading and libraries and bookstores and will probably never own an e-reader. I am wholeheartedly committed to never taking myself too seriously, and also to confronting injustice and fighting oppression. I live in Denver with my husband and two kids.

I am a firm believer in the power of literacy to change lives, and have spent most of my professional life teaching middle school kids the merits of reading and writing. Some of the best things I’ve ever read were written by 12-year-olds, and I’ve had the high honor of watching as a 7th grader finished reading a book entirely on his own for the first time in his life. These days, I’m creating instructional materials for my Teachers Pay Teachers store, writing as much as I can, and doing my part to make the world a more peaceful place by spending most of my time and energy working as a full time mama.
